President Trump Pressures Mexico with 5% Tariff on All Imports

President Trump says he will put a 5% tariff on all Mexican imports.

He wants to pressure the country to crack down on the surge of migrants trying to cross the U.S. border.

The tariff will go into effect June 10.

President Trump says that percentage will go up “Until the illegal immigration problem is remedied.”

The president tweeted the announcement yesterday.

He has accused the Mexican government of not doing enough to stop the influx of Central American migrants coming into the U.S.

It’s not clear how this will affect the new U.S., Mexico, Canada trade deal.
